The ‘American Idol’ runner-up and her boyfriend of just a few months tie the knot in an intimate ceremony with guests including Didi Benami!

Crystal Bowersox may not have managed to win American Idol, but it looks like she got something even better Oct. 10 — she married musician boyfriend Brian Walker! People reports that the couple wed in Chicago, the hippie bride unsurprisingly in, “an Earth-friendly hemp and cotton gown from Vermont designer Tara Lynn that features macramé, seashell and bead detailing and was created in the designer’s solar-powered studio.” That sounds about right.

Among the 60 guests at the intimate ceremony were Crystal’s son Troy from a previous relationship, Idol contestant Didi Benami, and It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia actor Lance Barber.

The reception was to feature, “a laughing Buddha cake from Bleeding Heart Bakery, a local organic and sustainable business, and performances from the groom and several musician pals.”

Crystal will soon return to the studio to begin work on her first album.

Congratulations to the new couple!
